As women, I think we often revel in fairy tales. We long for the same kind of love that breaks spells, defies odds, and ends on that high note with everything working out perfectly. But I’m not sure that we would actually want to live through the fatal flaws, choices, and battles that these same characters endure. The crazy thing is, God has already written our fairy tale love story and YOU are the main character! And this one is not some made-up story to make you wish your life was better. God is enchanted by YOU and He sent His son, Jesus, to literally DIE for you. So many of us have heard it over and over and sometimes I think it can become mundane. So let me say it again: The King of the universe, Creator, became a creation so that he could die for YOU, pay the penalty of the curse of sin, and rise from the grave to conquer death once and for all. Did you catch that? He did it all for love. That deep, enduring, end-on-the-high-note kind of love that cannot be broken, shaken, reversed, or revised. Agape. “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life” (John 3:16 ESV).
